It’s funny how the littlest things remind me of being a kid. Making this video I couldn’t help but be reminded of that childhood feeling from when you first get to play with new toys that you just opened up on Christmas morning.
Instead of toys this year, my amazing family helped me out with art supplies that I needed and this was my first drawing getting to break them in. Postnova Stanislava (aka Ruby.Tear) is the Russian ballerina that inspired these sketches. If you have followed my work, for a period of time, I’m sure you have noticed a pattern that I fall into. Where someone Inspires me, I tend to draw them lot… I don’t know what causes it or why it happens. Such is life. I say all of this just to warn you this isn’t my last time drawing Postnova. 😉
The music in the video is by one my favorite singer / songwriters Lydia Cole. The honesty and purity of her voice blows me away every time I hear it. Her music is on repeat playing in the background when I’m drawing. Please check her out she is an incredible human being.

I had so much fun making this video. It was great going through old and new projects, and revisiting amazing trips 🇯🇵. Made me miss Japan. I need to make a video from my trip there.
The song is by Imogen Heap. Special thanks to Nick Bowser for the Tiffany and Company footage.
P.S. The full version of the ballerina animation is pre-released on Patreon. ;)
I finally got around to editing the stop motion speed painting video of painting Laura O’Grady. The Video turned out better than i thought i would be. It’s a tricky thing painting a negative but i love the result. The Music is by my good friend Ryan Baxley. I hope you enjoy the video, and hope you like the Art in Motion Series.

Hey Friends! I hope you had a great weekend! Just got back from watching kids I used to coach compete in their final competition of the year. I wanted to post this video my brother and I made from Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2011 Fashion show a few weeks ago. I really like how it turned out. It kind of has a hypnotizing effect… Well at least to me ;) I really hope you like it!
Hey Friends, how was your weekend? Mine was great! My Family and i went Stand up paddle boarding today, and it was pretty fun. Also i finally finished Editing the video i shot at Rachel Antonoff‘s Spring 2011 Presentation! I’m really happy on how the video turned out. My goal was to create a video that captured the mood i felt at the presentation (which is pretty much the mood i feel 85.3% of the time… hah) the song in the video is from a group called “Slowblow“. And this song has been one of my favorites for a while so i was so happy that it was a perfect fit for this Short Film! Let me know what you think! I hope you like it! :)
Hey Friends! Happy Friday! I know it’s Inspiration Friday, So instead of posting images, i thought i would post this little motion Test i did today, for the Dream Walking Society. I’m thinking of starting to direct little movie shorts & Music Videos… SO, i made this little special effects test today to see if i could pull off some ideas i want to do. I hope you like it :) The Music is from one of my favorite bands, Efterklang. Let me know what you think! Have a great day!
hahahhahahahahahahaha Well Alice Came over yesterday, so we decided to have some stop motion fun… haha We made 2 little shorts. The First one was a little Gumby Stop Motion Movie. and then the second was this Hide & Go Seek Short! haha i know it’s random, but it was fun to make. Alice Styled the Film Short, and we climbed up on the hill behind my house. Then we just went for it. hahah so ridiculous! I hope you like it. The song is by Jon Brion from the “I heart Huckabees” sound track.
HAHAha, So Yesterday was my weekly or bi-weekly or maybe more accurately Daily Studio Cleaning day…i don’t know about you… haha There is something refreshing about it. So i thought i would make a little video of the daily transformation for my Studio. I originally posted it on “Inside My Brain“,But then i thought i should share it on here! :) I hope you like it! :)
Hey Friends, well i have some exciting news! Today, I was featured in Forever 21’s magazine. Also, the article mentioned a little something about a Little Collaboration i’m doing with Forever21!! :) I’m really excited about it. The Collaboration is still a little bit away from coming out. As far as the magazine, I did a few paintings for the “Alice in Wonderland” editorial. As I did the painting, I thought I would make a drawing process video for yawl. So this video was born out of it. It is crazy, I had to speed the video up 6,000 times faster! haha There is going to be a give away of my 2 limited edition prints of my paintings for F21. . Oh also, the song from the video was written by my really good friend Tim Frost. I stay with Tim & his wife Deanda every time i go out to Texas. But there is a cool story with the album. Tim wrote this album for his son, who loved Nintendo sound effects. So he wrote this full album inspired by video game sounds. Basically, it’s completely brilliant, and is one of my favorite albums! The album’s name is “Beadbox”! haa How awesome is that. I draw to this album all the time. He just put it up on itunes. If you want to buy it click here!
